Devine Kelly headed to Newberry College

DORCHESTER, SC (WCSC) - Woodland High School's defensive back Devine Kelly signed up with Newberry College on Wednesday.

Kelly has 157 career tackles, the most by a defensive back at Woodland.

"I feel happy because it's the most exciting thing in my life," Kelly said. "This is the one thing that I wanted to happen.

Kelly says his drive at high school will be similar to what he'll be brining to the table at Newberry.

"I'm going to perform like I did in high school. I'm going to work hard and work hard in the classroom. Academics is the most important thing to me. And sports, I'm going to work hard at that too," Kelly said.
